Drama Resources

http://www.jacinda1st.com/ this has become my favorite site for watching dramas. stream all clips on one page (saves loading time) usually faster than mysoju.

www.mysoju.com streams videos in 5 parts

www.dramasub.com view videos with or without subtitles

www.dramabeans.com read recaps and deconstructed summaries

Recent Dramas that I liked and would recommend:

Best Love (aka Greatest Love) 최고의 사랑 cute and cheesy, and on par with Pasta quick paced and easy to understand

49 Days 49일: in the beginning it had poor reviews but its last two episodes ranked #3, tear jerker and interesting in plot

Sungkyunkwan Scandal 성균관 스캔덜: mixed with modern and Chosun dynasty life, lots of hanja and teen drama

Kim Tak Goo, King of Baking 김탁구 빵왕: totally loved this drama, great 할아버지 and good script (you can even buy a bread line named after this)
